This hotel is located very close to Shilpgram, the starting point for the visit to Taj Mahal. The hotel is a decent property with adequate facilities for all kinds of travelers. The biggest issue I faced was the frequent tripping of electricity every few minutes. If the electricity is down for a long time then the phones & WI-FI stop working, so you need to be mentally prepared for this as the hotel staff cannot do anything about it. All they say is that the server is down & service will be restored in 15-20 mins.
There is a so called mini bar provided in the room but it is just for show as it is neither stocked nor in a working condition.
Food is of average quality & cost is reasonable but if you are in the mood for Chinese food then please go elsewhere unless you want to eat the same with a Punjabi tadka. Breakfast spread is quite nice & met my expectations.
Overall, if the cost is within your budget, you can stay there. However, there are many more hotels in the vicinity which are even more closer to the Taj. Hence, please check around before you finalize as there is nothing too exceptional about this particular property.
